Can Alvin Kamara carry the New Orleans Saints offense against the Los Angeles Rams?

The Los Angeles Rams and the New Orleans Saints face off in a match-up of two teams whose seasons have gone in the wrong direction. The reigning Super Bowl champions are spiraling following Cooper Kupp's injury, and the New Orleans Saints have no answer at the QB position.

Today we look at the best DFS plays from this intriguing match-up.

Best quarterback picks

Cash Games: Matthew Stafford, QB, Los Angeles Rams (DraftKings $5.5K, FanDuel $6.7K)

Matthew Stafford should return to action this week following his absence last week when he missed due to a concussion. Stafford will be without his right-hand man Cooper Kupp. With the Rams' running game stuck in neutral, Matthew Stafford will be the catalyst.

Tournaments: Andy Dalton, QB, New Orleans Saints (Draftkings $5.3K, FanDuel $6.6K)

Most DFS players will cringe upon trusting Andy Dalton in their DFS lineups. The Rams' defense has been vulnerable against the pass all season long. The weapons around Dalton aren't great, but Dalton is a cheap roll-of-the-dice option that could pay off handsomely.

Best running back picks

Cash Games: Alvin Kamara, RB, New Orleans Saints (DraftKings $7.6K, FanDuel $7.5K)

The Rams' front seven can be a formidable unit, but Alvin Kamara remains the chalk play in this match-up. With Andy Dalton remaining under center for the New Orleans Saints, we can trust the opportunities he will receive as the primary runner and receiver out of the backfield.

Tournament: Darrell Henderson Jr., RB, Los Angeles Rams (DraftKings $5.2K, FanDuel $6.1K)

The Los Angeles Rams have struggled to run the ball with any level of consistency all season long. The Rams' offensive line isn't what it once was, and the backs offer little juice. Most DFS players will be running away from the Rams' backfield, which poses an opportunity for you to gain leverage against the field. Henderson Jr. receives the lion's share of the backfield touches, making him viable in tournament contests.

Wide receivers and tight ends

Cash game: Tyler Higbee, TE, Los Angeles Rams(DraftKings $4K, FanDuel $6.2K)

Tyler Higbee will be the primary pass-catcher now that Cooper Kupp is out for some time. Higbee doesn't offer you sky-high ceilings like Travis Kelce or Mark Andrews, but his floor is rock-solid. In cash games, sometimes, that's all you need.

Tournament: Chris Olave, WR, New Orleans Saints (DraftKings $6.8K, FanDuel $6.9K)

Chris Olave has already developed into one of the best route-running tacticians in the NFL today. Olave is also one of the better deep threats, as his air yards for a rookie receiver have been astonishing.

The Saints don't throw the ball with precision, which limits Olave's upside, but if just one or two plays go his way, he is the type of player who can blow up the DFS slate.
